Question problem with VPN

I'm trying to connect to a L2TP VPN account in Ubuntu Lucid Lynx.
I installed "l2tp-ipsec-vpn" But couldn't connect so I added Openswan's PPA and upgraded to 2.6.37 but still I can't connect!
VPN account itself has no problem; Windows 7 connects to it without any problem!
l2tp-ipsec-vpn's log is:
Feb 29 02:35:09.691 xl2tpd[7020]: death_handler: Fatal signal 15 received
 Feb 29 02:35:09.691 Stopping xl2tpd: xl2tpd.

How can I fix it?

Hi Thanks
But I didn't changed any configurations!
I only installed "l2tp-ipsec-vpn" and "Openswan" and tried to connect!
Can you explain more?


ipsec, l2tp, vpn, vpn+time+out
